Laura,

Sending via this... but chanced upon this comment from one of the books I adore, "notes from the rainforest" by Gyorgy Faludy. He writes about the benefits of writing in Latin....

1) You do not have to worry about the intelligence of your readers. They're bright.

2) Having gone to the trouble of learning a dead language, they are likely to be people who can think for themselves, not part of any herd.

3) Latin is at least sixteen centuries older than English and may yet outlive it.

4) Small is beautiful. Crafting a Latin poem is like engraving an intaglio. The result, if successful, is exquisite and permanent.

5) It is intellectual resistance against the general rot. Like the Hasidim and the Amish, one is saying No to all the trivial crap of modern life.

Also a nice link to the Winnie the Pooh latin version I once mentioned to you... http://mek.oszk.hu/kiallitas/lenard/irasok/winniepu/winniepu.html
